While walking around my neighbourhood these last few days I have come across these beautiful blankets of colours lying beneath certain trees. Some are pale green, some are yellow and some are vibrant hot pink. It is especially pleasing when two or more of these trees are next to each other. They steal all attention away from their surroundings.
Most of these castings end up stillborn on cars, sidewalks, on the road and finally in the sewer. Today I stopped, picked up a handful and buried them under some dirt on a front lawn. It's easier to save a baby tree than a baby racoon.
